Well that’s a fine how do you do this wonderful Sunday afternoon! Come on, Collectors Club, I was just turning on Football! :)
The G.I. Joe Collectors Club has surprised us today with the release of the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention Brochure. Included in this brochure are the first details of the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention Exclusives set!
And holy wow, we have a good one here, folks. We have the Eco Warriors and Zombie Hunters versus Cobra’s own Eco Force, including some much desired Zombie soldiers!
According to the brochure, this is what we have to look forward to this year:
COBRA forces have acquired the “Compound Z” formula and have started testing it on their own soldiers. They believe by creating zombie warriors they can rule the World and turn its population into mindless creatures. G.I. JOE headquarters is split on how to handle the zombie affliction: save or eradicate?
GENERAL HAWK has formed two groups to solve this deadly problem. Who will be successful? Will it be the Zombie Hunters whose mission is to eradicate those infected or
will it be the E.C.O. (Emergency Chemical Operations) Force trying to rescue and find an antidote for those afflicted? And, what about the team members who become zombies, are they a casualty of war? If too many are turned, who will be left to complete their mission? Only time will tell and it’s running out!
The 2014 G.I. JOE vs. COBRA convention set contains highly requested teams and some new additions available for the first time in the modern era 25A action figure style. This special edition set includes:
Zombie Hunters: Outback, T’J Bang, Steel Brigade Commander
E.C.O. Force: Flint, Ozone, Clean-Sweep
Cobra Lab-Rats x 2, Toxo-Vipers x 3, Toxo-Zombies x 3, and Repulsor with Dawg (NEW K-9).
Each of these great teams comes with classic weapons, accessories, figure stands and file cards in this exciting fifteen figure boxed set.
Uhhh…let me be the first to say… HOLY WOW. That’s a lot of crazy coolness all in one convention set right there. You gotta think there will be some awesome use of 30th Anniversary parts in there, especially Airtight for the E.C.O. Force. But man… Outback and TJbang?! Zombie Hunters battling against the E.C.O. Force in their race to kill or heal? Some very awesome potential paradigms here, and I am freaking thrilled!! Cannot wait to start hearing and seeing more about this fun sounding set!
Check out the Brochure on GIJoeCon.com and hopefully we’ll start seeing some images soon.
